Answering Machine Message


Many of you enjoy my TGIF intros as much as the jokes and videos. Thank you. I am very flattered. However, today I don't think I can come up with anything profound or even the least bit interesting. Sorry. I'm in the middle of a rushed project so I don't really have time to chat.

As you can see, I'm the "genuine article." When I say I prepare this email on a Thursday evening, I'm not kidding. Sometimes I prepare a a little here and there (like selecting the jokes or doing some conceptual sketches) but for the most part, I only have a small window to repackage my favorite jokes of the week. And this has been going on for over 10 years now.

I know there are a few of you who are reading this email for the very first time. Welcome to the group! For those who've been reading this email blast for some time now, thanks for your friendship. Please spread this webiste around and send me your favorite jokes.

Now I need to go back to work.

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work..

O Danny Boy by the Muppets

Muppets - O Danny Boy

This video was too late to be included in my St. Patrick's special last week but who says we can't enjoy it now? I'm not waiting a whole year to share this. Clearly, these are the three best singers the Muppets have ever had to offer --- together at last!

What Retired Guys Do

What retired guys do Don't know if these guys are really retired but you would obviously need to have a lot of free time to come up with this.

Paying it Forward

Do you have time to waste? I shared this years ago but I found myself playing this silly game again. Mediocre which is rated as a "Bobbing Bobcat" is as high as I got. Can you beat my score?

Photoshop Pizza

With Photoshop nothing seems real anymore. See what this graphic artist does to make this model look utterly delicious. It's not what you think!

Falling Photoshoot

I was just thinking about bungee jumping earlier this week. Don't remember why except that I wondered if I had the guts to do it. The fashion models are good sports but the Photographer is the one who had to jump along with each of them.
